The Enigma of David's Toe
by Vincent Cannata
Renaissance art, past life experiences, and art terrorism lead to murder and suicide in modern-day Florence. David Rinaldo hears voices in his head that tell him to commit acts of vandalism. When he takes a hammer to Michelangelo’s David in the Galleria dell’ Accademia, he tells police that the woman in Paolo Veronese’s painting, Allegory of Wisdom and Strength told him to do it.
